Art Bell, widely considered the Godfather of Paranormal radio, recently stopped a broadcast for safety reasons when his security lights went off, and a man was seen crouching near his window. Bell grabbed a gun and went to the door. Once the man realized he had been seen, he fled into the darkness.
Last night, Art Bell canceled his program MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT at the last minute due to a ‘serious incident’ which occurred. The description of the events told tonight on Thanksgiving eve were chilling.
Bell said ‘somebody or somebodies don’t want me on the air,’ as he went on to explain several recent instances starting with the October live radio shooting that occurred while Bell was broadcasting. A police report on the matter was filed, and many neighbors heard the shots. One described a dark car and reported witnessing the person shooting the rifle near Bell’s studio on his property.
On November 18, Bell said another incident occurred at 7:50 PM PDT, where a call was placed to his house and a man’s voice said if he went on the air that night both he and his family ‘would be killed.’ The number was blocked and service providers were not able to provide further information. Tonight was the first time that Bell publicly relayed this information to his listening audience.
On November 23, as Bell began his interview with Michio Kaku, he explained that security lights in the rear of the home went on. Bell grabbed a gun and went to the door as he observed a man crouched down near his studio window. Once the individual realised they had been seen, they took off into the darkness of the surrounding desert. Another police report was filed after the incident.
Bell admits being shaken up by the happenings, calling it ‘terrorism on a personal level.’
Art Bell had a moment where he realized that he could have shot the intruder, saying “the next day it hit me like a bomb, ‘I almost shot at somebody’” during his on air description of the events.
